Womens Community Leadership Course

Hammersmith United Charities with its partners, Imperial College London, Hammersmith & Fulham Council and the Lyric Hammersmith are delighted to celebrate International Womens Day and to make a contribution to #pressforprogress by announcing that we shall soon be launching the Hammersmith and Fulham Womens community leadership course.


Agents for Change is an innovative new programme which will launch in 2018 in the Hammersmith and Fulham area.

It has come about as a direct result of a question raised at Hammersmith United Charity’s celebration of International Women’s Day in 2017. Following a discussion with Professor Maggie Dallman from Imperial College and Sian Alexander from the Lyric Theatre, a member of the audience asked if there was a local community based womens’ leadership programme. This is the result.

The programme will launch with a pilot course in the late Spring. The free course will be open to any local woman aged 18+ who wants to develop her leadership skills with the support of other local women..

Aunt Esther’s Story – Enigma Event

Last Saturday we had our second Enigma Event in partnership with “Women Make Change” who put together a great event for International Women’s Day. Women Make Change is a charity that promotes and protects the health and safety of women and girls affected by domestic violence.

Melanie Nock took the chance to introduce Aunt Esther’s Story. Esther Bruce’s autobiography written by Stephen Bourne tells the story of a black London Seamstress from 1912–1994 and provides a first-hand account of the life of a black Londoner in the pre-Empire Windrush years. When Esther Bruce was born in Fulham in 1912 only small black communities exited in Britain.

Another big announcement was the launch of the “Agents for Change” Women’s Leadership Programme that we founded in partnership with the H&F Council, the Imperial College and the Lyric Hammersmith.

Applycations are open now, find more information here: http://www.agentsforchange.wixsite.com/agentsforchange
